The Last of Us was the sixth-most watched show on the planet after just two episodes

The Last of Us was the sixth-most watched show on the planet after just two episodes

I hear it's quite good.

The Last of Us is over in less than a month but with these staggering statistics, it's likely to walk away with more awards than the showrunners can carry.

Played by Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey, Joel and Ellie must travel across a post-apocalyptic America in the effort to cure the Cordyceps infection that has devastated humanity. In these lawless lands, there are more threats than only those who have succumbed to the fungus, and no limits to the number of times that Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin were willing to break our hearts in 80 minute stretches.

The Last of Us Part I comes to PC on 28 March - check out the incredible improvements in this comparison:

Per the Nielsen chart for the week 16 January to 22 January, a subdivision of the media company that accrues audience measurement, data and analytics for television shows, it shows that The Last of Us snuck in to the top ten streaming shows in the world for that period. Netflix takes up the first five spots on the list, with Ginny & Georgia, That '90 Show, The Walking Dead, Vikings: Valhalla and Cocomelon. In sixth place, The Last of Us is above Netflix's Wednesday, but the most impressive part of this is that the Naughty Dog adaptation managed to make it onto the chart after only two episodes.

The second season is officially on the cards, thanks to the success of 'When You're Lost in the Darkness' and 'Infected,' and Ramsey is psyched to continue Ellie's story. "I'm really excited, to be honest, for the Ellie [and] Dina story," they said, though expressing trepidation for that scene in Part II. "The violence that ensues is thrilling in a way, to get to maybe explore that in a really safe environment. It will be cool," they concluded.
